About Our Auction
Funds raised by this online auction will be used to erect a historic log cabin home near the historic Jordan House Museum. We're raising money to pour a cement slab and hire skilled contractors to put the cabin back to its 1840s glory!
About West Des Moines Historical Society
The West Des Moines Historical Society is growing! Thanks to the purchase of 3 acres next to the historic Jordan House Museum, we have the opportunity to add an authentic 1800s log cabin home to use for education and learning experiences.
This log cabin is presently disassembled and will be stored on WDMHS property until we can raise funds to pour a cement slab and have master craftspeople reassemble it. The estimate for this work is at least $70,000, so we're raising money to bring a piece of Iowa history to West Des Moines!
